PEOPLE OF GOD
Our world finds itself standing at an intersection of both challenges and opportunities. We are asking the question, how do we move forward into the future of all that God wants for us. When we moved to our current location in 1995, Johnson found itself located at the intersection of Route 21 and 585, right on the corner, squarely located within the intersection and fabric of Northeast Ohio. We find ourselves positioned to meet these challenges, and experience the opportunities, with God's power, grace, and love. With every moment, breath, ministry, and movement, we seek to be the people of God, the body of Christ, the heart, the hands and feet of Jesus to each other, our surrounding communities and friends, and the world. So what are we about? We are about loving Jesus, loving others, and making followers and disciples of the one who calls us by name, gives us light for our journeys, faith to face the challenges, and hope to see the future that only God can give...Jesus.
We will encourage all persons to
Believe: To begin (and to live in) a relationship with Jesus Christ to
Belong: To join with other disciples in an ongoing journey of faith
Share: To demonstrate a life of faith through serving others.
We exist to make & mature disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation
of the world.
We are a body of believers dedicated to doing the work of Christ for the purpose of edifying the believer and non-believer. We strive to reach our surrounding community in meaningful ways and ultimately to reach those beyond the confines of Ohio and the USA to those throughout the world.
Meet Our Staff
Hello, my name is Tim, and I came to Johnson Church in July of 2019. I am so excited to serve as the lead pastor. I grew up in Dover, Ohio, and have a Bachelor of Arts degree from Ashland University and a M. Div. from Ashland Theological Seminary. It was at Ashland University where I met my beautiful wife, Amy. We have three children, who are the joy of our lives!
Since coming to Johnson, I have been amazed by the gracious and gifted people of our church and the surrounding communities! I am thrilled to be on the journey of life and ministry with all of you. It is a humbling and thrilling experience to see, be a part of, and experience all that God will do in and through us, as we surrender to Jesus, seek to love Christ with all that we are, and live as the hands and feet of Jesus!

Sports Rec Ministry Coordinator
I married my best friend, Tani, in April of 1988. Tani and I have one daughter, Hannah, a grandson, Judah and a granddaughter, Arielle. My heart breaks for the lost, so being Christ’s hands and feet in the community we live in, gives me energy and passion. Helping Christ followers find purpose in serving the lost in the hopes that some may be saved. Seeing lives changed is one of my favorite things associated with ministry. Romans 10:15 inspires me, I want it said of me that my feet are beautiful!
